The Dragonets of Destiny, having escaped their prison in the kingdom of the Skywings, seek out the ocean kingdom of the Seawings. Tsunami, the Seawing princess stolen as an unhatched egg by the Talons of Peace, is expecting a rapturous reunion with her mother, Queen Coral. Though Tsunami is welcomed by the queen, she realizes that finding the kingdom and returning home are two different things. Having set the scene in The Dragonet Prophecy (2012), Sutherland spends more time on character development here, with the bulk of the book focusing on Tsunami's story. With only a few pieces falling into place, there are still intrigues to uncover and kingdoms to visit in upcoming volumes. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

The dragonets of prophecy, free of both the Talons of Peace and the evil SkyWing queen, travel to the SeaWings' palace, hoping to find a safe haven from their many enemies. Infighting over who should lead leaves Tsunami feeling isolated. She dreams of a glorious homecoming befitting the next heir to the SeaWing throne. However, while Coral, the SeaWing queen, is welcoming, danger lurks beneath the dark water. Unable to speak the local language and thrust into a world of diplomacy and honor, Tsunami soon finds that the life of royalty is just as stifling as the cave in which she was raised. Faced with a choice between aligning herself with the SeaWings or continuing toward her prophecied destiny, Tsunami must decide where her loyalties lie. Along with the high-stakes decisions, the dragonets also face familiar adolescent challenges, including first crushes, parental angst and insecurity. This second installment in the Wings of Fire series proves to be as fast-paced and layered as the first. It also proves to be as violent. Explicit battle scenes, graphic deaths and even the suggestion that one dragon should "feel free to kill [himself]" will limit the allure of this series for many. Entertaining, but rugged.

From WINGS OF FIRE BOOK TWO: THE LOST HEIRShe burst into the air and kept beating her wings to rise into the sky. In the distance, she could see the cliffside cave and the worried faces of her friends poking out.An enormous splash sounded behind her. The other SeaWing surged out of the ocean. His massive tail whacked the water twice as he lifted into the air, sending giant waves rushing in all directions.He looked even bigger out here in the air. His hooked claws gleamed sharply in the sunlight. His dark blue eyes were fixed on her wings.The first true citizen of her kingdom she'd ever met, and he was coming to kill her.
